You know you have assimilated if....

Parked in the street while shopping −
And you see that empty parking space, don't you!

Continuing with the theme of yesterday's article, you know you have assimilated in Honduras if you:
  • Don't return phone calls because you don't want to spend your minutes.
  • Park in the middle of the street because you only need to run into the store for a few things.
  • Honk outside neighbors homes to get their attention instead of going to their gate.
  • Don't even blink when a gun is fired in front of your house.
  • Eat mayonnaise on your hamburgers because it is just too much trouble to ask for mustard.
  • Say "Si Dios quiere" (If God wills it) if you aren't sure that you want to commit to something.
  • Keep candles and lighters in every room for when the power goes out.
  • Keep buckets of water for emergency flushing.
  • Carry your own toilet paper at all times.
  • Buy a guard dog and a gun.
  • Never, ever say "I'm sorry" or "you're welcome."
  • Dress up to go to Pizza Hut.

How about it? Do you ex-patriates have anything to add to the list?
